12:42 am
her car, and when she did, someone else jumped in it and drove away so she did what any normal person would do. she filed a police report and then in a move that can only be described as abnormal, she hunted the car down herself. danielle's cell phone and wallet were still in the car, so she started tracking the thief's location on the phone's gps and cross-referencing that with charges the thief was making on her credit card. this is the kind of story we need right now while the rest of u.s. - well the rest of us, excuse me, are watching the news every day feeling helpless, this woman watched "taken" and was like, "i can do that. [ laughter ] but for my car."

12:43 am
it is too bad. it is too bad. she's not a detective because danielle reno is a kickass detective name danielle reno sounds like the main character on a show on tnt. [ laughter ] so finally, after two days of intense mariska hargitay role playing, danielle had a break in the case she showed up to a different gas station where the thief had recently used her card and learned that he had just missed them but one of the gas station attendants had overheard the thief making plans to have lunch at applebee's. because even criminals in your neighborhood like to eat good.

[ laughter ] >> fred: you know, we take it for granted now but people -- so when they debuted this, people just fainted and they just - [ laughter ] >> seth: was there, like, a show, was there, like a -- i don't know, how did art work in the day like, how did you first show a painting to people >> fred: it was in sort of a glass gallery. and they would show it there, it was, like, just the one painting and they would sort of unveil it and people just fainted. they would see it and like - [ laughter ] you know, especially because they're facing one direction, you see them, they're facing left that was a huge shock. at the time, paintings were -- [ laughter ] they were all straight-on and they were just people. >> seth: oh. so they were not even accustomed to paintings where people weren't making eye contact with the painter? >> fred: which is what made him a genius it was profiles. finally in art, there were profiles
12:52 am
people that it was both a piano depicted and profiles. >> fred: yes, and also the use of mustard >> seth: yeah. now, the mustard seems to have kept over the years pretty well. >> fred: i think so, too [ laughter ] >> seth: give it up for fred armisen, everybody.

[ laughter ] >> seth: do you think the punk rocker that is still inside you is surprised that you, the outside you, is running for president? [ laughter ] >> yeah. maybe just a little bit, but i'll tell you, this campaign at its best has a do-it-yourself ethic and spirit we don't take a dime from a single political action committee or corporation or it's all people, all the time, driving from one town to the next, showing up, telling our story but listening to the stories of others. which was kind of like touring in a punk rock band in the 1990s -- [ laughter ] a little bit >> seth: yeah. >> yeah. >> seth: probably a nicer car situation. >> yes, yeah
12:54 am
[ laughter ] we were touring in a -- we called it the lumber wagon it was a station wagon with four guys, our amps, the drum kit and maybe one change of clothes per person >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] >> and then on the road for the entire summer, but one of the best ways to spend that part of our lives, and it's still with me it's still with me >> seth: that's fantastic. i also want to ask, you were in brooklyn last night doing an event. you used to live in brooklyn >> yeah. >> seth: is this a true story that you had a trampoline -- >> yeah. >> seth: on your roof that you got from busta rhymes? >> so -- [ laughter ] [ cheers ] >> seth: and now, again, i - by the way, i get that this is a thing that a lot of candidates have [ laughter ] >> yeah. the answer is "yes." so a roommate of ours, it was either dylan or stephan was working on the set of a busta rhymes video >> seth: uh-huh. >> somehow came home with a n mo on wallabout street in williamsburg in 1996 and it doesn't sound like the safest thing in the world but here we were jumping on a
12:55 am
trampoline on the top of a building everyone survived. >> seth: i'm sure -- by the way, i'm sure busta rhymes checked it to make sure it's safe [ laughter ] >> totally >> seth: i mean -- if you're going to get one that you can trust for safety, that's it [ laughter ] >> busta rhymes, every time. >> seth: i want to ask, because we're coming up next week, another round of these debates ten candidates two different nights it does seem like one of the hardest parts is sort of differentiating yourself from other candidates with whom you share a lot. obviously. you ran against ted cruz in a senate campaign. do you ever miss how easy it was to be different from ted cruz? [ laughter and applause >> where is ted cruz when you need him >> seth: yeah, exactly [ laughter ] >> you know what - [ cheers and applause >> true. you know, what was so great about that campaign in texas, beyond getting a chance to run against ted cruz, was running in a state that had been taken for granted. really written off
12:56 am
ranked 50th in voter turnout and in addition to getting to debate him, we went to every single one of the 254 counties in that state. so no matter how big or blue, we showed up because we didn't want to take it for granted no matter how small or red or rural, we showed up there, too, because we didn't want to write you off. some places had voted for donald trump 96% in the 2016 election. one place, archer county, that we went to, no candidate from senate from either party had shown up in 70 years when lbj dropped out of the sky in a the courthouse grounds and walked over to the american legion hall it had been that lhownong sip to them so that was what was so exciting and at the end of the ut i wrect had in the history of the state of texas it was really an extraordinary election [ cheers and applause >> seth: and you won a lot of -- i think -- i think it was almost about a half a million votes of
12:57 am
people that voted for greg abbott. >> that's right. >> seth: a republican, who also voted for you. so this is, i think, one of the reasons why there was enthusiasm for the idea of you running is maybe you can connect people who don't agree usually with a democratic candidate obviously, there's a scalability question with the united states versus -- i mean, again, don't get me wrong, texas is pretty impressive but -- as far as size is that your plan here, is just to sort of get wheels down everywhere you can >> absolutely. that's the consistent theme, from being on the road with the guys in the band 25 years ago, to being on the road across 254 counties of texas. to this weekend being at the diving elk, a great bar in sioux city and taking questions from people who were there, introducing myself, and then going to sioux center which is one of the most, if not the most, conservative places in the state of iowa and not writing anybody off. and not asking who'd you vote for for president last time? what party do you belong to? who do you pray to, who do you rtant to
12:58 am
you right now. we're americans first before we're anything else. and i got to tell you, in addition to showing up with the courage of our convictions, talking about what we want to see for america, i'm learning so much by listening to people about what's important to them in their lives and they never asked about polling. they never ask about fundraising. they don't care about the horse race they want to know how they're going to afford prescription medication or how we're going to get mental health care, not as a function of luck or fortune, but as a human right that every single american can depend on. and think that's something that unites us across the differences that we have in this country right now. [ cheers and applause >> seth: it -- it strikes me that, you know, from what i know about you, it strikes me that you believe -- you're someone who thrives in that situation where you can get local with people. you can be in, you know, bars or restaurants talking to them in the places they live is it -- as you prepare for these debates, especially ones
12:59 am
where it will be you and nine other people onstage, and you know, short answers, is it frustrating to then take that same message that given the luxury of a little bit more time with people you feel like gets across versus what you'll be up again next week? >> short answer is yes >> seth: yeah. [ light laughter ] >> it's a very different experience to try to package a really complex policy issue and reflect what you've learned from everyone that you've listened to in america into 60 seconds and in an attempt to do that while nine other people are talking that's where we are right now. and my task is to come through as strong and clear as possible to define this as a moment of truth. you've got somebody holding mass rallies saying "send them back," four members of re someone who has the deaths of six children who are in our care in custody on the u.s./mexico border on his hands, on our conscience we got to stand up to be counted right now. and i want to make sure that we
1:00 am
come through and this marks the best period going forward for the united states of america that we stood up to this challenge. we stood up to this bully and we revealed ourselves to be an ambitious, aspirational people, defined not by fear but our courage and our confidence and the resolve that we show in order to accomplish these ambitious goals. [ cheers and applause >> seth: with -- i think one perspective you have that's really unique is, obviously, you know, you're from el paso. it's a border town and can you speak to -- what we might all be getting wrong about the border not just with how republicans have treated the situation there but how democrats have as well >> yeah. so, el paso, texas, my hometown, is connected with ciudad juárez and they form the largest binational community in the hemisphere there's 3 million of us who are joined, not separated, by the rio grande river, speaking two languages. coming from these two countries that form something greater than the sum of the people or the parts involved and el paso is one of, if not
1:01 am
the safest cities in america, not despite, but because it's a city of immigrants and asylum seekers and refugees so what so many people get wrong right now is thinking that mexico or mexicans or immigrants are a threat their very presence makes us stronger and safer and more secure and so if immigration is a problem, it is the best possible problem this country could have. it's time that we rewrite our immigration laws in our own reunite those families w've been separated free every single dreamer from any fear of deportation. and this becomes a stronger, >> seth: so -- all right. that's - >> yeah. >> seth: yeah. [ cheers and applause >> thank you >> seth: now you know what's going to happen, though. now that you did that, someone else is going to use it at the debate before you. [ laughter ] >> gave it away.
1:02 am
>> seth: you -- i do want to ask, obviously, it's a crowded field. i do think it's very early, and certainly historically, what we see in polling now is not borne out as a result of any presidential election. we're a ways out but i think some people have asked, you're obviously this incredibly talented candidate. certainly those in the democratic party said you -- "look, you're a great congressman. you came really close. maybe the best use of you isn't here with everybody else because all these talented people who are now putting their attention and obviously only one of them can get a shot at this how do you -- do you ever have doubts and think, "oh, maybe this was the wrong thing for me to aim for right now?" >> no, i never think that. m doing what i feel is the most important way for me to contribute to this country's success because i don't think that any one person is going to defeat donald trump or bring this divided country together again. i think it's really going to take a movement. and a movement that doesn't care if you live in a big city or a small town, if you're an independent, a democrat, or republican
1:03 am
a movement of all of us. and more than 100,000 people have signed up to join this campaign to volunteer or knock on doors hundreds of thousands have donated 5 or 10 or 15 bucks. we have the greatest volunteers in the country working their hearts out right now and they all know that this is a marathon and there's going to be highs. there's going to be lows but through that, we must persist and it's the only way that we're going to be successful and secure that nomination, defeat donald trump, and then meet the ambitions of this country and see these great priorities through once we're in office in 2021 >> seth: all right well, thanks so much for making the time for us. [ cheers and applause >> thank you, yeah appreciate it, sir >> seth: stay hydrated out there. >> i will. >> seth: beto o'rourke, everybody. we'll be right back with retta >> thank you [ cheers and applause ♪ -their b se sauce here is the best in town.
